A Multi-Line Agency and/or Multi-Line Marketing Agency is a person registered in Canada with a business address in Canada, employed full time in the promotional products industry and provides sales and/or marketing services for two or more PPPC members doing their own invoicing.
Become a PPPC MULTI-LINE AGENCY for only $175 annually + applicable taxes. (+$49 processing fee upon application)
To qualify for membership in the Corporation as a MULTI-LINE AGENCY or as a MULTI-LINE MARKETING AGENCY, an applicant must:
a) have worked full-time in the promotional products industry with a corporation member company as an employee, sales representative or multi-line representative for at least twelve (12) consecutive months and submit names of previous employers for the last three (3) year period immediately preceding the application
b) provide the corporation with the names of the suppliers that the applicant represents at the date of application with a minimum of two PPPC supplier members in good standing; if more than two suppliers are represented then a majority of the total number of companies represented must be supplier members in good standing of PPPC.
c) provide evidence of representation by providing the Corporation with letters from the voting member of the PPPC suppliers represented confirming the contractual relationship between the applicant and the suppliers which are members in good standing.
d) by signing the application form the applicant acknowledges that this membership does not entitle him/her to exhibit or otherwise represent non-member suppliers at Corporation functions.
e) Application for membership may be made on a voting or non-voting basis, on such conditions as may be determined appropriate by the Corporation.
Processing of a membership application cannot commence unless all required items are submitted.
An application must include the completed application form, a letter of reference from each Supplier member represented, a copy of the applicant’s business license and/or registration or incorporation document and full payment of the membership and registration fees.
Should all required items be provided, the applicant’s credit history be positive and the application be approved by the Membership Committee of the Board of Directors, the application is automatically accepted. Please note that if accepted as a member of the Association, the applicant is subject to a one (1) year probationary period.
Multi-line sales or marketing representatives pay an annual fee of $175* and can opt-in to any of the three “a la carte” options below:
- $90 for access to CPSA (Canadian Professional Sales Association) benefits and travel discounts
- $105 for the right to exhibit in one’s own booth under one’s own name
- $158 for voting rights which permit one to vote on PPPC issues and to hold a position on the regional or national boards
Membership fees are non-refundable and are pro-rated. If an applicant is accepted in July, the payment sent with the application covers membership for twelve (12) months. Since PPPC’s fiscal year ends on October 31, the applicant will be invoiced for the following year, therefore being invoiced from July to October of the next year. Thereafter, the applicant will be invoiced annually as is all the membership.
*Fees are subject to change
Refusal / Cancellation
Should an application be refused by the President or by members of the Membership Committee, the applicant may appeal to the Association’s full board. When an application is either cancelled or refused, the applicant is reimbursed for the payment of the dues received with the application; however, the processing fee is non-refundable.
